Piercing process, healing time & more

Although this piercing might seem to be a bit more complicated to do, an experienced piercer can easily, and safely do it. This is why it is very important to choose a studio and a piercer you trust and know that they have many years of experience. The pain level should be the same as with other cartilage piercings - a pinch, then some tugging when the jewelry is inserted. It should be a quick and easy process, and you’ll be able to rock your rook in just a couple of minutes.

Because of the location, the healing time of a rook ear piercing might be a bit more complicated than in other placements. As with other cartilage piercings, it will take between six and twelve months for your body to heal. It can depend on a lot of things, and some people just heal faster than others. You must leave your rook alone. Avoid touching it, moving it, or causing any type of trauma to the area. Try and sleep on your other side, so your piercing can heal without being irritated. As with all piercings, you can help your piercing to heal faster and better by following a good aftercare regimen. The best way to go is using Saline Solution a couple of times a day, not moving the rook jewelry around, and letting your body heal. If you experience anything out of the ordinary, or just have questions, contact your piercing studio. They should be able to provide you with answers and additional help.

Many designs can be worn as rook jewelry, but the most common one is a curved barbell. This is the easiest for your body to heal, as it doesn’t move around as a ring would. Even if you want to start out with a ring, consider choosing a curved barbell. There are many different and cool designs, and you might fall in love with it once it’s in your ear. After your rook piercing is healed properly, you’ll be able to change to any design you desire. You can find rings with a smaller diameter, which will look amazing. If you don’t feel comfortable changing your piercing, ask your piercer. This way you can make sure your that the piece you choose has the perfect size and is inserted without causing trauma to the area.
